"Testing LLM Algorithms While AI Tests Us"

Rob Ragan, Principal Researcher | Thursday, February 15 at 7 p.m. ET

Embarking on a journey akin to the conceptual exploration of AI in a world where the line between human and machine intelligence blurs, this presentation delves into the realm of Large Language Models (LLMs). We navigate through the advanced landscape of cybersecurity, employing innovative strategies in threat modeling, API testing, and red teaming. This exploration is not just about fortifying AI against threats but also about probing the depths of our interaction with these systems. Join us in a stimulating quest to ensure the resilience and reliability of GenAi & LLMs, a journey that mirrors the intrigue and complexity of the most sophisticated AI narratives.

Key Takeaways:
- Exploring User Interaction with GenAi: Engage in a dialogue about the pervasive and perhaps unnoticed interactions with GenAi in our daily lives, and how this influences our digital experiences.
- In-depth Insight into LLM Security: Uncover the intricate techniques and tools applied in threat modeling and API testing, and MLOPs red teaming to safeguard LLMs.
- Strategic Testing of GenAi & LLM Systems: Delve into strategic planning and testing methodologies for GenAi & LLM systems, ensuring their efficacy and security in real-world applications.
